I hadn't noticed this restaurant walking around Del Mar because it is a little unassuming from the street. We googled Mexican restaurants in Del Mar and this was top of the list. Service was prompt and very friendly. Margaritas are made with all fresh ingredients and the food was very good. Good vibe all around!

Great little place to hang out with friends. Went downstairs to the bar to hang out with friends for a going away party. Very interesting vibes there.

I went by myself (on a business trip), and the staff were very willing to help describe dishes and beer offerings based on my preferences. Food was delicious, service was prompt and friendly, and of course, the patio is lovely.

Only at dinner do they serve chicken enchiladas with a guajillo sauce and it... More

Extensive menu with all the Tex mex favorites. Great combinations and the specials are to die for. Superb service. Ask for Victor.

En Fuego is an ok place in Del Mar. Service is fine, the location nice, the food - I would say "Texmex" hits it on the spot - is ok, but rather very much on the cheesy side. The drink list is one of the better ones in Del Mar. Overall a reasonable place to go, especially for the ambience... More
